2. Radiator Panels Radiator panels are simple but ingenious devices that can drastically cut heating costs. They reflect heat, normally lost at the back of the radiator, back into the room – boosting power output of radiators by up to a third. They are easy to fit too and require no plumbing or radiator removal. There are a wide range of them on the market from mini-radiator panels to simpler reflective foil – all of which can cut your fuel bills by up to a quarter!
3. Standby Savers With so many electrical items from TV’s, DVD players, set-top boxes and computers having a stand-by mode, huge savings can be made by turning these items off. A device on stand-by is still using power and while nobody wants to go around plugging and unplugging items, standby savers do the job for you and will prevent all this wasted power.
4. Solar Powered Chargers With so many rechargeable gadgets about, from mobile phones to MP3 players, recharging fro free can make a real collective difference. Solar chargers can allow these devices to be recharged completely free – and they also proven another common problem: when transformer chargers are left plugged in – they use power even when nothing is attached to them; another way of cutting back on waste.
Wind Wind is another great source of clean, green energy. Due to wind occurring potentially at all times of the day it doesn’t have the same limitations that solar does. Unfortunately though the amount of wind can be sporadic, so while it may continue to provide energy through the night, it can be unreliable based on the weather. Wind is already set up in a range of countries and expanding on this would be a great step to achieving a more eco-friendly energy system.
